This asylum has changed its focus to keeping fans, new and old, up to date on various sports and their athletes. We welcome articles, pictures, icons, and videos chronicling 'canon' moments and events. Fics are still welcomed at [info]sports_rpf, but keep it to athletes and sports that are considered in professional leagues and not college level.

Erm. Argh. Baseball RPF got outed again. From theboysofsummer (link):

Attention, attention.
Thanks to a couple writers / fics being outed on Sons of Sam Horn and Deadspin, some writers are locking down their fic. Whether or not you choose to do this is up to your own discrtion, however-- if you lock your fic in an external journal / writing community, don't link it here. Post a locked entry to [info]theboysofsummer, or a public entry here. Posts that community members can't read unless they friend you will be deleted.

Strengthening your disclaimers is strongly encouraged. The one we use here is pretty solid.

Here is the link to the Deadspin article. I couldn't find the one on Sons of Sam Horn. Even worse, it's RPS incest they linked to. Yeah, they linked to the LiveJournal itself. *facepalm*

This asylum uses the "Minimize your journal's inclusion in search engine results" option so you don't have to worry about locking things down here if you don't want to.

I would suggest, however, your journals have the "Minimize your journal's inclusion in search engine results" option enabled. Here for LiveJournal and here for InsaneJournal.

I'm putting on my mod hat as I promote this event:

Don't forget about livelongnmarry!

What is this?
Live Long And Marry is a fandom auction to benefit marriage equality. Bidding begins on July 1, 12:01 AM one minute after midnight Pacific Time, 2008, and closes on July 15, 12:01 AM one minute after midnight Pacific Time, 2008. Please do not bid until bidding opens.

What's the cause?
The auction will raise money for the fight against the California initiative which will legally destroy existing same-sex marriages and ban any further ones. If the initiative passes, it will write discrimination into the state constitution, annull existing marriages, and make Mr. Sulu cry.

How can I help?
You can bid on fanfic, original fic, vids, cookies, memorabilia, critique/betas, and much more! Or you can offer your skills and services as a writer, vidder, baker, knitter, or whatever else you'd like.

Bidding tips is here. Tag list is here for your convenience.

Welcome to [info]sports_rpf.

All real person fiction about sport athletes are welcomed here as well as all ratings. All I ask is to keep pictures and stories behind lj-cuts and to play nicely with everyone.

If you have any tag ideas, please let me know here and I'll add them in.
